Trader Spotlight - Larry Williams

Larry Williams

“In a business known for one-hit wonders, Larry Williams has endured, passing the test of time… If there is one person who embodies the mind and the spirit of the individual trader during the entire 40 years existence of futures it probably would be Larry Williams.” — Futures Magazine, November 2012

Larry Williams began following the markets in 1962. His interest was sparked by the Kennedy market crash, when President Kennedy forced a roll back in steel prices. The crash was front page news everywhere. People lost millions but Larry was more taken by the fact that if you had been “short” the market, you could have made millions.

Once Larry began to understand that he could make money trading the markets, whether the market was going up or down, he was smitten. Williams graduated from the University of Oregon in 1964 with a bachelors in Journalism – a background that has led him to publish a dozen popular books.

By 1965 Larry was actively trading the markets and began writing a newsletter. It wasn’t long before Larry began producing ground breaking market research. In 1966 he developed his famous timing tool, Williams %R. This tool still is published daily in many major financial papers and is a standard indicator provided on trading web sites from MSN’s Money Central to Yahoo!

In 1970 his first investment book, “The Secret of Selecting Stocks,” was published. Larry followed that with the first book ever on the seasonality of stocks and futures, “Sure Thing Commodity Trading: How Seasonal Factors Influence Commodity Prices.”
His 1973 ”How I Made One Million Dollars… Last Year… Trading Commodities” is one of the best-selling commodities books of all time.

Williams stunned the trading world by running a $10,000 account to $1,147,607 for an astounding 11,376% net return in the 1987 World Cup Championship of Futures Trading®.

Larry’s long list of best-selling books includes 1982’s “How to Prosper in the Coming Good Years,” which accurately forecasted the largest bull market and surge in economic growth in American history. He is the recipient of numerous awards, including Futures Magazine’s first Doctor of Futures Award, the Omega Research Lifetime Achievement Award and Traders International 2005 Trader of the Year. The mayor of San Diego declared October 6, 2002 as Larry Williams Day in honor of its local celebrity.

Over the past 40 years, Larry has lectured at premier investment conferences throughout the world.

 Matching funds is an amount equal to the advisor's account balance at the time of entry into the program. A unit is equivalent to the quantity traded by the advisor on each trade, and may vary from program to program. Performances are for proprietary accounts that are either owned by the advisor or are entities of which the advisor is a beneficial owner. There have been no net cash additions to these lead account. Peak-to-valley draw-down is the greatest cumulative percentage decline in month-end net equity during the life of the account. Subscribers funding with a balance equivalent to the advisor's initial investment subsequent to the program inception date could experience a drawdown that exceeds the advisor's historic drawdown on a percentage basis. Subscribers should take this into consideration when determining the funding level of their account. When the commission rate has changed during the life of a program, performance data is calculated using rates that applied during specific periods of time.
